Rahimtullah Bhaiwas a famous social worker.

In 1825, he immigrated to Muscat when plague epidemics broke out fiercely in Kutch followed by a severe famine.

He started his small business in Muscat. He made steady progress and generated his intimate terms with Sultan Sayed Sa'id (d. 1856) of Muscat. He was an influential personage in the Sultan's court. In memory of his meritorious services in Oman, a marble plate in his name was placed in the palace of the Sultan of Oman.

Rahimtullah died in the village of Darafa, near Ganod in Kathiawad.
